WELCOME to the Website of The Gospel Faith Messenger Ministry.
May you be inspired, encouraged and challenged by what you read.
The GFM Ministry has been in operation for over 55 years and continues to grow in its spiritual influence in many countries of the world. Our Message is simple: JESUS CHRIST IS ALIVE TODAY to meet your every need through the power of the Holy Spirit! He is only a sincere prayer away! Reach out to Him and find in Him the real answers you need for your daily living.
The GFM Ministry is focused on releasing the Holy Spirit Ministry through the five-fold ministry gifts (Ephesians 4:11-16) and the nine Spiritual Gifts (1 Corinthians 12:1-11), Gospel literature through books, booklets, manuals, Gospel Tracts, 3 Bible Correspondence Courses (free) and Church Meetings (by invitation).
Living for, and Serving Jesus is very exciting indeed, and we invite you to seek Him while He may be found. The best is yet to come for those who will believe the promises of God!
We have some of Rodney's Books in PDF format that can be freely downloaded (see Resources)
God Bless YOU!

Prayer Support Letter
How privileged we are to know Jesus in this needy hour of time. It is important that we are using our time and spending our days being actively involved in God’s purpose and calling for our lives. Nothing else really matters than our fulfilling the purpose for which Jesus has saved us and chosen us to be fellow workers with Him through the same Holy Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead. How awesome is that ~ to have the same Holy Spirit that Jesus had living inside of us, so we can fulfil His calling in our lives on a day-to-day basis. There is nothing more fulfilling or satisfying than to know the will of God for our life and we are doing it. We experience God in so many different ways that we will never experience outside of our doing His will. Therefore it is very important for us to have such a personal relationship with Jesus that we know His voice when He is speaking to us and we are actively obeying whatever He has asked of us. He is amazing! For over 20 years Jean and I have lived totally by faith and God has provided our needs in so many different ways. We do not know where our next dollar is coming from ~ and we have no debts or mortgages ~ and every month every bill is paid. All glory to Jesus! He is no respecter of persons and He desires that we all know Him in such a personal way that we are confident of His promise to us that “My God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:19). Consider what is being said here. Can you measure “God’s riches in glory by Christ Jesus”? It is beyond natural comprehension. Hallelujah!
GOD IS FAITHFUL
It is very important that we are able to prove God (personally for ourselves) in these times. There is a rising opposition against Bible Christianity and so it is vital that we know Jesus personally, know His voice when He speaks to us, so we can know His guidance, power and provision. He is such a Faithful God that He will not let you down: “He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it” (1 Thessalonians 5:24; 1 Corinthians 10:13). “God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord” (1 Corinthians 1:9). Trust Him more and more and see what He will do for you. I have often shared that “God wants to be God to the Christians”; He wants us to know Him more and more and what He can do for those who trust and obey Him. There is no greater place to be than to be walking and living in the centre of God’s will for our life right here on earth today. “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you” (James 4:8).
PROVING HIS WILL FOR YOU
God desires that we can prove His will for us personally. Please take time to meditate upon these verses: “I beseech (“urge”) you therefore brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed (“to change and alter radically”) by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God” (Romans 12:1-2).
If we do what these two verses are telling us then we will not only know but prove the will of God for our life. To prove something is to know without doubt that what we are doing is right in the centre of God’s will for us. Is there any better place to be in this life than being right in the centre of God’s will, knowing without doubt and doing it? God bless you. ~ Rodney W. Francis.
